Meg Baird | Counterfeiters
Meg Baird is streaming a new song, “Counterfeiters”, from off her upcoming June 23rd Drag City release, Weigh Down The Light. It’s a soft, contemplative folk song just this side of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The song expands into beyond the textured guitar, carried by caressing harmonized vocals that ease into what sounds like a drowsy saw. It’s a gorgeous trip into the open prairie spaces. The Drag City promo paragraph describes the music on the forthcoming album as “songs of memory and forgetting … within the architecture of shimmering guitars and melancholy light … razor sharp edge of her voice in your bones.” This record is the San Francisco artist and Espers’ lead singer’s third solo effort, following 2011’s Season On Earth. — David D.
